Live Mandela’s legacy and do good every day

2016-07-21 06:00

AMONG the best of actions are those that gladden the heart of human beings, feed the hungry, help the afflicted, lighten their sorrow and remove their suffering.

Being of service to others is an integral part of humanity. All should be actively engaged in social welfare and in meeting the needs of the communities where they reside.

An individual who is insensitive to the suffering of other human beings and is not inclined to serve the cause of humanity cannot be described as good for humankind.

We must always be ready to serve humankind and have love and kindness for all of God’s creation.

Mandela Day was a global call to action that celebrates the idea that each individual has the ability and the responsibility to change the world for the better.

“What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.” — Nelson Mandela.

The message behind Mandela Day is simple: if each one of us heeded the call to simply do good every day, we would be living Mandela’s legacy and helping to build the country of our dreams.

Mandela followed three rules throughout his life, which he did at great personal sacrifice: Free yourself. Free others. Serve every day.
